  • At the Daily Caller, our own Jill Stanek writes about President Barack Obama’s history of “blind faith in abortion doctors” like Kermit Gosnell:

    Note Obama expressed concern that saving abortion survivors “might impact… the relationship between the doctor and the patient,” and that this [Illinois Born Alive] legislation was “really designed to burden the original decision….”

    … Obama apparently cannot fathom that an upstanding abortionist who had been paid to kill a baby wouldn’t turn around and try to save a viable baby’s life in the event of a botch.

    Kermit Gosnell would have been one of the abortionists in which Obama had “confidence.”

  • NARAL’s take on the teen whose parents allegedly attempted to force her to have an abortion is not surprising (they argue it confirms the importance of “choice”), but it leaves me wondering: “If you’re really in favor of everyone’s choice, then why is it that a pro-life group had the resources to help this young woman while I’ve never heard of a pro-choice group protecting women from forced abortion?”

Planned Parenthood pushes for Do-It-Yourself abortions

… Planned Parenthood has spent the last few years vigorously campaigning for less medical oversight on abortion drugs…. When they say “limit[ing] access to abortion drugs,” they mean “requiring basic medical safeguards.” This is pro-choicers’ current cause célèbre: they demand less involvement by trained physicians. Less oversight by the FDA. Fewer requirements to ensure the […]

  • Planned Parenthood is opposed to forced abortion so much that they issued a press release regarding Chen Guangcheng after he had already made it safely to the United States. Gee, thanks.
  • Robin Marty attempts to prove that if abortion is difficult to get, women will go to desperate lengths to end their pregnancy. She highlights a British woman who died after drinking concentrated vinegar in a home abortion attempt. One large problem with this argument is abortion is readily available in Great Britain and paid for by tax dollars. So the example undercuts Marty’s argument because it shows that some women, regardless of how much access there is to abortion, will do stupid, dangerous things.

Pig industry borrows from Planned Parenthood playbook when confronted with undercover video

Huffington Post has posted an absolutely horrifying undercover video exposing abuse of the pigs and piglets at a Wyoming pig breeding farm. WARNING: Graphic and disturbing… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNY4Fjsdft4[/youtube] The response by the National Pork Producers Council may sound familiar:

Percentage of ob/gyns offering abortion declines to 14%

Great opening line in this MedPage Today article, August 24: There may be fewer obstetrician/gynecologists performing abortions than previously estimated, researchers said. The good news is that only 14% of 1,031 ob/gyns responding to a new survey said they commit abortions, down from 22% in 2008. The results were published in the September issue of […]
